These guys are magical in more ways than one. Come and learn how these fantastic fungi can add flavour and depth to a dish!

Presented by Alex Bosman & the garden team.

Spend the day with our head gardener, Alex Bosman, to discover more about the function and uses of fungi at Babylonstoren.

Walk the farm to better understand how fungi play a vital part in our garden, from plant health to insect and pathogen biocontrol. Enter our mushroom room to harvest your own fresh oyster mushrooms for lunch. Alex will share and demonstrate a few tricks to cultivate beautiful oyster mushrooms. Under his guidance, you’ll fill your own oak logs with shiitake plugs, to grow (and harvest!) at home.

Steaming coffee from our Lekker Room is served upon arrival.
Lunch at the Greenhouse Restaurant is included. Please meet us at the Farm Shop
